Welcome to The Folk School of Fairbanks

Programs

The Folk School offers a variety of annual and ongoing programs. To us, a program is larger or more comprehensive than a class and continues year after year, such as Week in the Woods. Programs can consist of classes around a theme or can be tied to seasons and repeat each year. If you have ideas we would like to hear about them.
